Knockdown, Knockout, Validate: Lentivirus delivers payload in vitro and in vivo for CRISPR, RNAI, and ORF applications


What Does it Cover?

Whether you are looking to knockout, knockdown, or overexpress genes, lentiviral transduction is the superior mechanism for delivering genetic cargo into hard to transfect cells and in vivo systems. Lentivirus is a perfect tool for screening applications since the delivered genetic material is constitutively expressed by the cells long-term. We will discuss the flexibility of our expert manufacturing group and present examples of applications suitable with lentivirus.

During this webinar, we dispel the preconceived misconception that lentivirus is risky or cumbersome to use. As a trusted lentiviral manufacturer, we will share our best practices for handling lentivirus and the simple steps that set you up for success.

What Will You Learn?

  • Lentivirus biosafety features and best handling practices
  • Flexible customization options to fit your needs
  • Techniques to incorporate lentivirus into your gene studies
  • Insight from a leading Lenti manufacturing expert

Who Should Attend?

  • Any researcher who is interested in how lentivirus could improve their CRISPR, RNAi, or ORF expression levels
  • Researchers working with challenging cell lines
  • Any researcher new to working with CRISPR, RNAi, or ORF technologies that want to understand the delivery options available
